General chat about Amiga topics / Re: Pre-Production Amiga 1000 System
« Last post by Matt_H on August 03, 2021, 04:15:49 AM »
I also linked to a later prototype at AmigaLove (maybe you missed it since the links were right next to each other - sorry for the confusion about that). From your photos, I would guess that your unit is newer than that one - the labels seem a little more professionally done and it has a slightly more realistic serial number.

Got any more pictures? The front of the case and the keyboard in particular will help to identify where the unit falls in the production history.

Do you still have any of the disks or documentation that came with it?

Oh MY! That's terrible news, I've seen you here on, off for many Years. Stage 4 is not a good prognosis, go for new treatments if you can "Volunteer" otherwise just get your house in order and your head tight with God. Best to you and your family.

So I've been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and I'm probably going to be selling my entire Amiga collection to help pay for treatment, including my prized possession that is the subject of this thread. I've got to start cataloging everything this coming weekend. Trying to decide whether to break everything up or just sell everything together.

Hi! Anyone have this board? I have framemachine II (aga) with prism24, all aga pal modes are very good, but no-flicker modes are out of sync for my 1960! Is normal? I thought it would bypass this modes, I need to use two monitors?  :-\

Our Amiga 1000 system is clearly not as early as the "black box" development system that you gave a link to. Ours seems to be very early series production, prior to FCC approval, and was used for actual software development. The black case unit looks more like a short-run proof-of-concept system than something most developers would have trusted to write code on for production. Photos of the "not for sale" and SN stickers from our system are attached.

Welcome! That's a neat find. A few other pre-production systems have turned up in recent years. It would be helpful it you could post some photos to see if this is part of a known prototype series or something newly discovered.

Also curious to know what software you and your team worked on way back when. I'm sure many here would love to hear some stories!

General chat about Amiga topics / Pre-Production Amiga 1000 System
« Last post by JimmySteel on August 02, 2021, 05:26:34 PM »
I worked with Commodore as a third-party software developer for the Commodore-64 and other systems. We recently discovered that we still have a complete pre-production Amiga 1000 system. It has a sticker (dot-matrix printing) on the bottom reading:

"PROPERTY OF COMMODORE
NOT FOR SALE
THIS DEVICE HAS NOT BEEN APPROVED BY
THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION.
THIS DEVICE IS NOT AND MAY NOT BE
OFFERED FOR SALE OR LEASE OR SOLD OR
LEASED UNTIL THE APPROVAL OF THE
FCC HAS BEEN OBTAINED."

The serial number sticker shows number XM1000999 and the model number is 1000-X.

Any information about this seemingly rare (or at least scarce) system would be appreciated. It powers up normally, but we have not done much more with it so far. TIA.

Please note our advertising partners

On the Amiga Future webpage we offer you a huge free content all about the Amiga.

Because the Amiga Future is a non-profit project, the Amiga Future homepage has to finance itself completely.
The homepage, which is currently around 30 GB in size, is funded without exception through advertising, donations and our own private funds.
Programming new extensions, databases or features really costs a lot.

At the top of the webpage there are several banners from our advertising partners. We also have advertising in the left navigation bar.

Through these web partners we finance the server and programming costs of the Amiga Future webpage.

We would be happy if you pay attention to this advertising and that will ensure that there is still enough advertising on the Amiga Future webpage to finance it adequately.

It contains the CoverCDs of Amiga Future issues 138-147.

Editors for the printed issues of the Amiga Future
**************************************************
We are particularly interested in coverage of these areas:

* Demo scene
* Applications 68k
* Games 68k, AmigaOS4, MorphOS
* Hardware (all system areas)

Would you like to work on our print magazine for the Amiga that has been around for almost 25 years?

Then just get in touch with us.

Translator for the print edition of the Amiga Future
****************************************************
The Amiga Future is in German and English.
As a result, articles have to be translated into each respective language.
We have sufficient translators for the Amiga Future.
However, when it comes to submitting articles, many text files need to be translated in a relatively short time. This is our famous bottleneck that regularly creates undue and unwelcome stress to all.
So, we want to permanently solve this problem.

To alleviate this problem, we are looking for more translators to bolster support for our printed issues of Amiga Future.

Amiga Future magazine index update

The Amiga Future magazine index has been updated and now also contains the index of the latest edition of the Amiga Future.

The magazine index contains all article titles from the Amiga Future editions.
This makes it easier to find a specific article in over 20 years of Amiga Future.

In addition, the magazine index can also be used with the AFA Viewer for AmigaOS 4.

Firstly, to find out in which edition an article was published.

But you can also read the articles published on AFA-DVD directly with the AFA Viewer.
To do this, the AFA-DVD must be in the drive or installed on the hard disk.

It is also possible to partially access the files directly from the Amiga Future homepage.

Free download of the AFA Viewer: https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/dlext/index?cat=78

The cheats database of Amiga Future is updated weekly by David Jahn, even if at first sight that is not immediately apparent.

The cheat database on the Amiga Future webpage is probably the largest German collection for the Amiga.

This doesn't just cover cheats, as many solutions, tips and tricks, as well as Freezer addresses can be found in the collection.

Don't forget you can find more than 3400 Games Cheats and solutions in the database, and there are always more being added.

The database is currently entirely in German, but if we receive enough donations for the website, we have plans to integrate a full-blown online database, which will also be available in English.

Amiga Gaming / Air Mail (Amiga Game)
« Last post by jojo073 on August 01, 2021, 12:37:34 PM »


Today I want to talk about Air mail, this game is an authentic exotic adventure. You are driving a pilot who has crashed in a remote area of ​​central Africa. Your mission is to escape from the wild environment and be able to return home. But everything around you wants to kill you. indigenous, traps, piranhas, lions, gorillas and especially the jungle that will make you get lost and end up in the stomach of some wild animal.

The game takes place over several phases, you have to collect a series of packages and letters that have been scattered on the ground before crashing. If you can rescue the mail, you will be a true hero when you return home.
The game has 3 different endings depending on your patience at a certain moment you can go home earlier and advance the adventure without collecting all the mail.

But only a true hero will be able to enter the depths of the territory to get all the mail and thus see the end of the game more difficult to achieve.

This game was designed a few years ago, but was abandoned by the original team. After a few years, it seemed to me that it deserved an opportunity to see the light, so I looked for the original designs and I began to develop the game with everything that I thought it should have ...

The result is a fun game of adventure, search and survival, good music by Ricardo Vieira.

This game has a physical edition available, it includes a card half eaten by a wild animal, haha
If you want to try this game you can ask me for the .ADF at jojocreativo@gmail.com (ADF disk image at no cost)
